6.26.23 It's zoo day! When I made the decision to take this trip, I knew I had to come to Wichita so I could go to the Sedgwick County Zoo. I had been following them on social media for quite some time and it seemed like such a lovely place. I love zoos and I try to go to them whenever I can. I woke up bright and early to get to the zoo ahead of the heat, and hopefully the crowds.
For starters, this zoo is GORGEOUS! It was laid out smartly and the paths were wide and smooth. There was a decent amount of people there, and so many kids. What's with that?

As I was finishing up at the riverfront, the rainclouds moved back in so I headed back to the hotel to make a game plan for the next day. I couldn't decide if I was going to stick around Wichita and go to the botanical garden, or if I would head out of Dodge...no, still not Dodge, just Wichita.
